Important Update from Superintendent Dan Snowberger

We recognize that school closing is a major decision and challenges many of our families with a lack of childcare or supervision while parents are engaged in their careers and work. We don’t take this decision lightly, but will always take the best interest of our community to heart as we evaluate the situation.

Currently, our schools are closed until Wednesday, March 25. Our district will evaluate conditions and circumstances each week and determine if extension of the closure is needed. Those decisions can be expected on Wednesday of each week. As this is a rapidly changing situation, we will decide one week at a time to limit the unnecessary impact on our community as a whole.
